Traveling abroad can be a life-changing experience. This program provides insights into processing social privilege, oppression, and racial identity in an international context.
Whether you have been or plan to travel abroad, this interactive program provides participants with the opportunity to assess their own identity and explore the implications it may have in these new unfamiliar places.
We will explore privilege and oppression in the international context through stories gathered through the lnterAction & Entropy Magazine's "Privilege & Identity Abroad Narrative Writing Contest". We will prepare you to think about your identity and how it could impact your experience abroad. We will also provide tools and a framework to check your privilege, stay safe, and build authentic intercultural relationships. Participants will have the opportunity to share their own experiences with one another
